A USB email indicator

By martinm, in DIY, may 04,2012.

One of the common issues linked to internet consists in knowing whether you've got mail at a glance, without consulting any computer-like equipment. This week, we provide a solution to this issue by lighting a Yocto-PowerColor when an unread email is awaiting your attention in your mail box. In fact, the real difficulty lies in integrating the Yocto-PowerColor in a decorative element, making the result visually pleasing.

Mini-enclosures for mini-modules

By mvuilleu, in New stuff, april 26,2012.

Among the various requests that you have made to us, there is one which is particularly difficult to satisfy: to provide an enclosure to protect and dress our modules. Sure, we could have contented ourselves to sell a grey plastic container in the purest 70's style, as others do it, but this really didn't fit with the style of the modules. We could have gone for an acrylic glass enclosure, which has always a good rendering on pictures, but it would have been too bulky and unpractical with regards to the size of our modules. No, something better was needed, something which would not make our modules lose their size advantage...

Example on ARM Linux

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in DIY and Tiny PC, april 20,2012.

This week, we are making two gauges which are going to display CPU and disk usage of a machine under Linux, but we are going to make them the Yoctopuce way: two physical gauges controlled by two servomotors! As many customers have been asking whether we support ARM architectures, we are going to create this project on a "computer" which uses this architecture.

Soldering tutorial

By martinm, in Electronics, april 06,2012.

Almost all of the Yoctopuce products are conceived so that you can use them without needing a soldering iron. Nevertheless, they are also designed for you to connect them together in a very compact way and there, a soldering iron is necessary because there are contacts to solder. This is the case, for instance, when you want to connect modules to a Micro-USB-Hub. We realized that a large number of our clients didn't feel at ease with a soldering iron. We therefore decided to offer you a short tutorial.
